The plane, owned by Wilderness North Air departed on February 28th and was reported as missing later that day. An extensive air and ground search was launched in hopes of rescuing the pilots, 26 year old Steven Maxwell and 23 year old Mitchell Frost.

Sadly those hopes were dashed on March 4th when the aircraft was located south of Chaucer Lake completely destroyed both pilots had received fatal injuries, the TSB has launched what it refers to as a class three investigation, which remains ongoing.

Meanwhile, Celebrations of Life will be held for both Maxwell and Frost on Saturday.
